Your argument is not with me—but with member Skip, who continues to assert:

Then you missed the knot of southbound motorists I was caught up in going 85-MPH, on the way to the border. I realized I was "way-over", pulled in, and was promptly passed by a "Pilgrim" bus—going 90!

When managing "the gauntlet", one must pass not one—but two—schools with kiddies.

You misquote—then miss my point completely.

Another appeared recently in The U.S. Naval Institute's publication of Proceedings, a monthly periodical. The issue reviews just one poor Caribbean country's interdiction fleet—featuring one of eight similar patrol boats—made by Nor-Tech.

"...built without bunks and water tanks to fit 100 extra gallons of fuel and other equipment, such as a FLIR camera and communications equipment. They are used for coastal and riverine patrol, search and rescue operations, anti-narcotics operations, go-fast interdiction. They are armed with a M-60 machine gun and they carry M-16 rifles."
—Wikipedia


Isn't that "military"?

Here's the foreign-Navy vessel that threatened a U.S. Navy vessel:
